Product Questions

Hi there,
What is the recommended amount of rock per gallon? I'm aquascaping a JBJ 28 LED tank. thanks!
Question by: Chris on Sep 30, 2013 8:07:00 AM
Hey Chris,
We recommend a pound per gallon as a good ballpark place to start. It will give a nice middle of the road aqua-scape and is what most folks are looking for!
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Sep 30, 2013 8:07:00 AM
I'm setting up a 35 gallon 20inX20in cube, out of the three pukani, reef saver or Fiji which offers the smaller pieces my tank requires for me to get the best results aquascaping? Thanks!
Question by: Kyle on Nov 22, 2013 8:48:00 PM
Hi Kyle,
Fiji and Reef Saver offer the smallest size pieces. Personally I prefer reefsaver in these types of situations as it is really easy to stack and create your aquascape.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Nov 22, 2013 8:48:00 PM
Is the price shown here the price per pound? Thanks.
Question by: Steve on Sep 5, 2013 6:11:00 PM
Hi Steve,
Yes the rock is sold by the pound, so the quantity you enter in the quantity field is the number of pounds you are ordering.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Sep 5, 2013 6:11:00 PM
Hi, I am looking into getting into a reef tank. I understand I need to cure the rock, but could I keep fish during the process? Also, would 60 pounds of reef saver be a good amount for a 40 breeder?
Question by: Ethan Wood on Apr 10, 2016 4:52:00 AM
Great question!
You will not be able to keep fish with curing rock as the nutrient levels will fluctuate too much. Around 40 lbs would be recommended for weight. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 13, 2016 6:57:00 PM
Do the rock come in certain sizes or just random?
Question by: Bobby on Feb 9, 2014 6:38:00 PM
Hi Bobby,
There made by nature so they are like snowflakes, each piece is entirely different, though most range in the softball to football size.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Feb 9, 2014 6:38:00 PM
What is the weight of one rock?
Question by: Logan on Apr 25, 2016 11:42:00 AM
Great question!
It will range by size of the pieces however on average a football sized piece will be 5 lbs.
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 27, 2016 2:44:00 PM
I've just read a couple of articles saying that this rock has phosphates in it and to give it a Muriatic acid bath followed a Lanthanum Chloride treatment, is all this really necessary?
Question by: Vinny on Mar 30, 2016 7:22:00 AM
Great question!
You will not need any acid or other treatment for the rock. By curing the rock in heated saltwater for 6-8 weeks you can remove all dead and decaying elements (Phosphate is not "In" the rock rather it is part of the dead and decaying elements) Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 31, 2016 7:06:00 PM
I am setting up a new tank and will add the rock with live sand and water at the same time. Can I just put this rock directly from the box into the tank without curing in water for a couple of weeks? Thanks,
Question by: Jonathon C on Mar 17, 2016 1:09:00 PM
Great question!
You certainly can cure the rock in the tank without much issue. You will want the rock to sit in the tank with no lights and high flow for 4-8 weeks. After which you can perform massive water changes of 100% and ensure the nitrogen cycle has begun. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 18, 2016 9:53:00 AM
Is the price for the rock for a piece or by pound? If so, how big is the piece?
Question by: Frank on Apr 12, 2016 5:38:00 PM
Great question!
All rock is sold by the pound. On average a football sized piece will weigh between 5-10 lbs. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 18, 2016 6:19:00 PM
Do you ship reef saver rocks to Canada? Your website says no tonga, pukari etc.
Question by: Leo on Apr 20, 2014 11:26:00 AM
Hi Leo,
Yes the reef saver rock can be shipped to Canada.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Apr 20, 2014 11:26:00 AM
I am starting a new tank with the Reef Saver Dry Live Rock and Caribsea Arag-Alive Fiji pink sand. Should I start the cycle with the sand first while I cure the rock and add the rock later? Or can I start the cycle with both the sand and rock? What is your recommendation?
Question by: Calvin on Apr 23, 2014 3:37:00 AM
Hi Calvin,
If your going to cycle the rock in the tank, I would just do your aquascape, add the sand, add the water, and then let the whole system cycle together.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Apr 23, 2014 3:37:00 AM
I have a 75 gallon reef tank with only 60 pounds of live rock I want to buy 50 pounds of reef save dry rock but what is the process to do to add it to my existing tank without a problem
Question by: Christian on Aug 2, 2014 1:59:00 AM
Hi Christian,
The Reef Saver Rock is the cleanest of the rock so you don't have to worry about a cycle when adding it to an existing tank. You will get the best results by giving the rock a bit of a cure before adding it to the tank though. The simplest thing to do is to grab a container large enough to submerge the rock. Fill it up with your rock and some saltwater, throw a heater in it and let it sit for 4-6 weeks.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Aug 2, 2014 1:59:00 AM
Because this rock is considered to be devoid of all pests and algae is it still a requirement to cure it prior to beginning to cycling my tank or can I just aqua scape add sand, water and continue on ?
Question by: Chris on Mar 9, 2016 9:41:00 AM
Great question!
You will want to cure the rock still to build up a safe amount of bacteria and remove any dirt and contaminants as it is still removed out of the ground, Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 9, 2016 3:54:00 PM
I am setting up a 120 gal and would like to buy 120lb of reef saver rock. Now if I use the Red Sea reef mature kit or Dr. Tim's bacteria to cycle the tank do I still need to do the 100% water change?
Question by: Michael Eaddy on Apr 3, 2016 10:09:00 PM
Great question!
We recommend curing the rock in a separate container to remove any excess nutrients before placing into the tank and starting the tanks cycle. If you prefer to cure in the tank we recommend curing for the same period and starting the cycle with the mature pro later. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 6, 2016 6:50:00 PM
Hello, i was going to buy some of this rock but i see that it does not display by how many pounds you guys sell it. How many pounds is the rock displayed?
Question by: Max on Jun 13, 2015 5:17:00 PM
Great Question,
We sell all of our rock by the pound. We ask that you give us an estimate of how many lbs of rock you are looking for (Ex. 1 lb per Gallon) The pieces shown in the product photo are not actual pictures of the rock you will receive, more of an idea of shapes and sizes, the typical Reef saver will range between 5-15 lbs for a football sized piece.
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Jun 15, 2015 4:17:00 PM
How big is each piece?
Question by: Chad on Mar 17, 2014 4:13:00 PM
Hey Chad,
Each piece is different which is why its sold by the lb. Pretty typical for most pieces to be in softball to football size range with a football size piece weight somewhere in the ball park of 7-8lbs.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Mar 17, 2014 4:13:00 PM
Hi I'm setting a 20 gal tank. Please recommend the quantity adequate. Can this be shipped to India??
Question by: Conrad on Feb 26, 2016 9:31:00 AM
Great question!
We typically recommend 1 pound per gallon around 20 pounds total. Unfortunately we do not offer international shipping outside of the US and Canada. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Feb 26, 2016 9:39:00 AM
Just bought some of the reef saver rock. What temp should water be to cure. I'm going to be adding these to established reef with existing live rock. I'm going to cure for 3-4 weeks. Should I ever change the curing water while curing? When cure is done, do I just rinse rock off and add to tank or something else?
Question by: stanton on May 13, 2014 11:55:00 AM
Hey Stanton,
I would use water that is the same temperature as you will have the tank at. Pretty good bet that will be somewhere around 78 degrees or so. You don't need to do a water change while curing the rock but you want to get rid of all of that water when your done. If your curing in a separate container you can just move the rock to the tank. If your curing in the tank then do a 100% water change.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on May 13, 2014 11:55:00 AM
Do we type how many pounds we need of the live rock in the quantity feild? Like I would need 20 so I would just Type 20 in the quantity feild and I would get 20 pounds??
Question by: Ben on May 16, 2016 9:00:00 PM
Great question! All of our Dry Live rock is sold by the pound, meaning, quantity entered stands for pounds (lbs). Ex: 20qty = 20lbs :)
Answer by: Carter (Admin) on May 24, 2016 11:24:00 AM
Hello I have the reef saver rock and wanted to know how many pounds to put in 60 gallon tank ?
Question by: Hector on Jun 7, 2014 9:41:00 AM
Hi Hector,
About 60lbs total should be great for a tank that size.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Jun 7, 2014 9:41:00 AM
Good Morning! I'm wanting to create a couple of islands in my reef tank hopefully creating a "bonsai" look. I've ordered 60 lbs of the reef saver rock and wanted a few of the shelves with the base. But it would only let me order a minimum of 20 lbs which came to almost a $100. Is there any way that I can order less than that? I'm not sure how much 20 lbs of the shelf rock would be and I only wanted a few pieces to add to each island. Thank you for your help~
Question by: Janet on Jan 22, 2014 4:31:00 AM
Hi Janet,
The 20lb minimum isn't because we don't want to let you buy less then 20lbs, its because a single rock weighs atleast 20lbs :-) Rocks with base are typically quiet large so if your looking for smaller/lighter pieces, the pieces without a base will be what your looking for :-)
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Jan 22, 2014 4:31:00 AM
If this is 100% pest free, why does it need to be cured? I am replacing live rock I bought from a LFS in September of 2015 that I have been battling aptasia, bubble algae, and bryopsis with.
Question by: Randy on Jun 23, 2016 9:35:00 PM
Great question! We recommend curing all dry rock in order to establish a good starting population of beneficial bacteria within the pores. :-)
Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Jun 29, 2016 5:35:00 PM
I'm looking to add some dry rock to my existing setup? I will not be removing any of my current live rock I would just be adding the dry rock. So can I just put it right in or is there something I need to do to it first? Thanks for the help........Chris Turo
Question by: Chris T on Mar 31, 2014 1:28:00 PM
Hi Chris,
We would always recommend cycling any rock outside of an existing aquarium before adding to a tank with livestock, though as far as rock goes the Reef Saver rock is by far the cleanest rock out of the box.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Mar 31, 2014 1:28:00 PM
How much does the average reef saver rock weigh?

Whats the average weight per a rock?
Question by: peter on Apr 8, 2016 10:19:00 PM
Great question!
Depending on the size they can typically range from 5 - 10 lbs per piece. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 12, 2016 5:32:00 PM
do you need to cure reef saver rock the same as you would live rock or is it fairly free of organics?
Question by: john on Sep 1, 2013 3:53:00 AM
Hey John,
We would advise cycling any type rock from any source because it just isn't worth the risk of your live stock not too. As far as the rock goes though, the reef saver is by far the cleanest of any of the rocks right off the bat.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Sep 1, 2013 3:53:00 AM
Howdy y'all, I've seen the video of Ryan chiseling and cutting the Pukani rock. Is the Reef Saver rock as easy to manipulate and cut? Thank you!
Question by: Blake on Oct 4, 2013 11:06:00 AM
Hi Blake,
The Reef Saver rock is much harder and not nearly as easy to manipulate. If you want to chisel out caves and the like I would highly recommend going with the pukani :-)
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Oct 4, 2013 11:06:00 AM
I am in the process of planning a new tank, a JBJ 45 rimless Cube AIO and was wonder what is the recommended amount of rock for a tank this size as well as the correct amount of sand for it. the actual display portion of the tank will be 26 x 16 x 21 I was going to use the ocean direct original grade sand approximately 1- 2 inches deep. Would you recommend another type of rock for this?

Thank you.
Question by: Rob on Dec 23, 2013 1:28:00 AM
Hey Rob,
Great questions. For a tank your size 45-50lbs of rock should be right in the ballpark of what your looking for. Sand wise with the dimensions of your tank, coincidentally your also looking at 45lbs to get you about a 2" sand bed (half as much for a 1" sand bed). With most sands being sold in 20lb or 40lb bags, I would pick up a 40lb bag (or 2x 20lb bags) and you should be in great shape.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Dec 23, 2013 1:28:00 AM
does this rock have to acclamate
Question by: lynda on Oct 24, 2013 10:26:00 AM
Hi Lynda,
The rock isn't alive so it itself doesn't need to be acclimated. We would however recommend cycling any rock from any source being atleast cycled before adding to an existing aquarium to make sure there isn't any risk to your existing livestock.

BRS Reef Saver Dry Aquarium Live Rock, our environmentally friendly rock, works great for aquascaping. This rock is 100% free of nuisance algae and pests which can cause complete tank shut downs and is guaranteed to be free of apitasia, bubble algae, parasitic isopods, mantis shrimp, acro eating flat worms, little red bugs, fire worms, predatory nudibranchs, pyramidellid snails and other common pests. BRS Reef Saver rock comes in unique shapes that fit well together to make interesting and unique structures. BRS Reef Saver Rock arrives at our warehouse pre-soaked and rinsed. This is by far our cleanest rock.



BRS makes every effort to securely pack the Rock.  However, the UPS automation is not always gentle on heavy products like this and they do not consider this product insurable. Because of this, there is some inherent risk with shipping rock like this across the country and it is impossible to replace or refund broken pieces. If this happens most pieces can be repaired with epoxy.

  • Very Nice By Mike on 12/4/2016

    This looks fantastic on top of being of minimal impact on the environment! I ordered 20 pounds for a nano reef tank and was impressed with the size of rock. I will be picking up more for any other tanks that I will be doing in the future!
  • 3 big rocks By Aaron on 12/1/2016

    First off, the rock is excellent. Nice and full of nooks and crannys. But frankly after receiving my order I'm a little upset. I ordered 40 pounds for a 30 gallon tank. (I wanted extra so I could have various sizes to aquascape and leftovers for a small fuge.) I opened the box to find 3 pieces of rock around 15 pounds each. Because of this aquascaping is limited with 3 big rocks that probably will not fit right and overall just look stupid. Variety of sizes would be nice, and frankly, expected.
  • EXCELLENT By Inkedtx on 11/15/2016

    I am completely new to reefing. This was by far my father best decision I made. The rock looks beautiful in my tank.
  • Very nice rock! By Mal on 10/31/2016

    This rock is very nice looks great and has lots of large holes. It's not very porous through and through so it isn't as good for bio filteration.It really looks great though!
  • Excellent By Naso69 on 10/31/2016

    Very nice dry rock, stacked very well. Ordered 25 lbs and was surprised at how much of this rock it was
  • Reef Saver Rock By raider1970 on 10/21/2016

    I was very skeptical about using this rock. However after receiving the product I find it to be top notch. It is dusty when first unpacked and it does crumble a little. I did not find it to the extreme as other reviewers. I bought some glue to adhere the pieces together and did not use it. Aquascaping is a breeze as it truly locks into place. I am sure after seeding and cycling this rock will be as good if not better than any rock I've used in the past. I bought Reef Saver over Pukani for the ease of aquascaping and the dry Pukani still has sponges and other dead organisms I chose not to deal with. Can't wait for it to be covered in coralline algae.
  • Excellent By Naso69 on 10/19/2016

    Very nice rock very porous rock. Stacked very well. I was impressec woth the amount of rock i got for the weight that i bought
  • Nice stuff By jwrc on 10/15/2016

    This is nice looking rock. I am setting up a second tank with dry rock instead of liverock since I ended up with a couple of nasty critters. This is a great alternative.
  • Heaven on Rock??!? By Andrick on 10/8/2016

    -Doesn't Impact The Environment
    -Easy To Aqua Scape
    -Easy To Make Into Sizes That You'd Like
    -BRS For The Most Part Sends Rocks I Desire (But They're Not Mindreaders, Crazy Right?)
    Sidenote: Just Top It Off With Some Tonga Shelf Rock
  • Good looking rock By J on 10/5/2016

    Looks good in my tank. Ordered 11 lbs and got 3 rocks but I broke one up and it was very easy to do
  • Not Reefsaver By Tristan on 10/3/2016

    I ordered 30lbs of reefsaver and all I got was regular base rock. There weren't any intricate holes or anything as would be on real reefsaver and Marcos Rocks
  • Fantastic rock By Justin on 9/29/2016

    I bought this rock for my 40g breeder. It came in 3 large pieces which fit perfectly. I chose thos over live rock because it doesnt have an impact on the reefs and the price! I thought it was going to take forever to cycle and im already getting nitate readings after a week with ammonia cycleing. I paired this with carribsea live sand and bio-spira and its working amazing. THANK YOU BRS
